Cowardly fake patriot Bill Whittle "jokes" that Texans should shoot Californians
On the video below rightwing commentator Bill Whittle - occasionally affiliated with Pajamas Media - "jokes" that Texans should shoot Californians who move to that state. He spoke at an event featuring Ted Cruz, who's seated in front row center.
Whittle's "joke" illustrates yet again the low level of patriotism of many of today's conservatives leaders. Instead of standing with their millions of fellow citizens in California - including Whittle - many in the conservative sphere turn their backs and run away.
On the video, Whittle says in part:
I’ve said this several times in Texas before and I’ve said it to Mr. Cruz as a representative of the Texas government, I’ve said it to Gov. (Rick) Perry directly, and now I’m going to say it to you as individual Texas citizens... You will see a lot of cars coming west heading east on Interstate 10, and they’re going to have California license plates on them... Now, if you see these cars pull into rest areas or hotels or restaurants, that’s fine; wave goodbye, make sure they go out on the Louisiana end.... But if you see them pull off into residential areas, you need to open fire on these vehicles immediately... Immediately. Not with 9mm or AR rounds; you need to put mortars on those things, you cannot take any chances... [Californians moving to Texas] will change it and mess it up... Don’t let that happen. Just start shooting... What’s the worst that could happen to you?... I mean, honestly, this is Texas, right? You’ll stand in front of a Texas judge, (and) he’ll say, ‘Did you shoot up that car full of Californians?’ You’ll say yes, he’ll say why. You’ll say, ‘Well, your honor, they needed killing.’ And he’ll say, ‘We’ll strike a medal in your honor,’ and off you go... I know many of you kindhearted Texans will walk up to some of those starving California families, and maybe you’ll offer a crust of bread to some of those hopeless-looking California children, and the California parents will say ‘thank you, but is this crust of bread gluten-free?’... Because, you know, Enoch and Mia have an intolerance and they’re indigo aura children, and they really don’t react well to gluten.’... I’ll be 500 yards off to the side with a long-handled spade and my AR 15, and I’m going to say, ‘Texans, I can shoot and I can shovel, please let me in... ’I promise I’ll do more good than harm.’”
It's because of panderers like Whittle that California recently passed drivers license for illegal aliens. Instead of remembering which country they're citizens of and standing with their fellow citizens, cowardly fake patriots like Whittle turned their backs and ran away.
